By Mililani T. Posted Wednesday, October 17, 2012
“Sustainable peace for a sustainable future.” Something that is not easily attained, but worth the long road to achieve. Dame Julia Morton-Marr, one of 1,000 women representing world peace and a Nobel Peace Prize nominee, has an idea to help pave the way to a sustainable future.
On September 14, 2012, the University Laboratory School was honored to have Dame Morton-Marr grace them with her presence at their humble school for the second time. ULS is one of her two lighthouse schools in the world. According to Ms. Tomita, “lighthouse schools exhibit the same qualities as a lighthouse, which shine in the darkness.” They are chosen to set an example for other communities. Her visit was purposeful with a set purpose: to help our school become a more peaceful community for everyone.
